Diamonds 1 transforms the traditional hanging lantern archetype into a symphony of 102 different angles of Paktong, an ancient golden-hued, silver metal, encasing 24 blown glass panes. The lantern is lit by an internal hanging pendant of a similar shape, and is suspended by a custom paktong chain with a unique repeating master link design.

Paktong is a unique, non-tarnishing metal which first appeared in China in the 12th Century and disappeared in the 19th Century. Meta hence re-created Paktong with the help of Oxford University’s archaeological material sciences unit and a small, specialist foundry with a particular expertise in complex alloys. The Meta-Paktong formulation is based upon a 1720 candlestick, made of Chinese-sourced Paktong which possesses a particularly beautiful patina.

The lantern is available in two sizes, as well as matching sconces.
